… that seems to be controversial these days.
Well — I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately and I want to share my thoughts with you.
But before I start, let me tell you this. I’ve observed that posts which advocate to play Rust just for fun often get deleted. Why? Is this such an earnest place?.. So, if some admin is already hovering over the delete button (I can see you!), let’s put our differences aside and please hear me out. Thank you!
So what is Rust to me?
We all seem to agree that Rust is multi-platform and you can, well, play it safe. But is that really fun??
Many say it has a friendly, safe and welcoming environment and community. Hm, they obviously never engaged in real PvP! Lol.
In fact in Rust you have to run blazingly fast to guarantee threat safety. But whether your runtime will always be minimal - as some folks keep suggesting - really depends on your condition though. You just need to practice and only trust your own benchmarks. Your runtime will improve - that’s guaranteed.
Some people suggest to study move semantics first… If you keep loosing data races, you could try that too – it may sound a bit abstract at first, but hey, it’s zero cost!
Rust supports a lot of hardware … but I’ll tell ya, don’t expect a good framerate from a cheap system. It’s absurd that so many people are even thinking about running Rust on RasPies or even in a browser (doh!).
Even more esoteric theories suggest codes in Rust. I had a look at these so called codes and think they are a myth. Believe me, they won’t help you against anything larger than a bug anyway, even single-threated. Harhar.
But I’ll be honest with you: Community is indeed the most fun part of Rust to me. That’s why I’ll do Rust with everyone of you. Even if you believe in exhaustive pattern matching. Lol.
